Dennis Prager's Are You a Liberal?

According to Dennis Prager, about half of the Americans who call themselves liberal do not hold the great majority of positions held by mainstream liberal institutions such as the New York Times editorial page, People for the American Way, and the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

Here is a test of this thesis to be given to anyone who believes he or she is a liberal, or if you just want to double check. According to Dennis, this is still a work in progress.
